In past decades, Chief Financial Officers were the chief accountant. That was before financial engineering or robotic process automation. That was before millennials or the “me too” movement. That was before the delayering did away with the COO role. In 2000, half of the Fortune 500 had a COO. Today, fewer than one third have one. The change: CFOs are increasingly looked to for operations and strategic leadership, not merely as the top number cruncher.

Experienced CFOs must join with new and aspiring financial managers to re-skill themselves for a leadership role this new world. Or be sidelined…

The platform addresses how finance could support and grow sustainable businesses in an age of accelerating change, leveraging seismic changes in both technology and business models.

Financial executives must reinvent themselves to adapt—to create the new role of financial leadership for 2025. This requires they acquire new knowledge and capabilities to “own” that new role. This will require a new form of continuous, active learning, not just for the CFO but as part of company culture.

The CFO Story Series – Edition 2020 Chennai, brings together a multidisciplinary team of finance leaders and subject matter specialists to help CFOs stay ahead in the face of growing challenges and demands. The closed-door forum, produced by CPO Innovation, will provide CFOs, financial controllers, treasurers and other finance executives the opportunity to spend a full day immersed in a productive environment and interacting with peers from large enterprises and multinationals, as well as business specialists and other experts.

An impressive panel of A-list CFOs coming from both multinational companies and top national companies will share insights on helping CFOs to risk-proof their business, and gain a better understanding of today’s economic environment, industry issues and a digitized and disrupted house of finance with a pragmatic outlook.
